National Film Registry Announced 2012
The list is out (earlier than usual) and like last year, it's pretty good, but not particularly good. And, unlike last year, they didn't pick any Oscar Best Picture winners, which puts them behind again. For bad or for worse, every American film that has won Best Picture needs to be on there. I mean, what's the holdup on, you know, TITANIC?
There were, however, several quite deserving "biggies" that made it: BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, DIRTY HARRY, and THE MATRIX among them.
Just one of my picks made it-- A CHRISTMAS STORY. My #1 pick several years running, BLUE VELVET, has not made it again!
